PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Phillies are headed into the series with a 2-0 lead over the Cincinnati Reds.
The “fighting” Phillies successfully dug themselves out of a score of 4-0, taking advantage of major errors made by the Reds late in the game.
Fans gathered at Geno’s in South Philly, hours after the game ended.
“We are hot, go Phillies!” said Chrissy Przychodzien, who was still wearing her Shane Victorino jersey at 4:00 a.m.
“The fact that the Reds messed up and we were able to come back and win, that’s awesome,” said Phillies fan Dave Sullivan.
“It was excellent,” said Antoinette Medley. “They came back, I love when they dropped the ball twice,” she said referring to the Reds. “How can you drop one ball twice?”
The positive energy felt throughout the city isn’t hitting everyone the same.
Nicholas Antolick says he doesn’t understand why so many people are on fire for the Phillies. “If your team wins, I really don’t get why it matters to you?”
